“Every one of us is competing against ourselves. Get better at something, whether it’s a small thing or a huge thing. Nobody’s ever had a perfect day, but you’re trying to get there.” – Richard Sherman, Seattle Seahawks
It’s hard not to sit in awe and watch one of the NFL’s best defensive backs dominate a game. It’s amazing how he has gone from special teams player to a top cornerback and playmaker on one of the league’s best defenses. But reading the quote above, and you’ll quickly realize that Richard Sherman has the right mentality to be great.
After being passed over for the first 153 picks of the 2011 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks finally drafted the Stanford cornerback in the fifth round.

Sports agent Kelli Masters was at her very lowest point in life. The broadcast journalism graduate and former Miss Oklahoma was searching for what to do with her life. She had recently graduated from the University of Oklahoma and had gone into law school just to open up career options for her. On the outside, everything looked great for this aspiring young woman. But on the inside, she was in a dark place and felt lost. It was at that moment she found God.
“I personally hit rock bottom. That ultimately paved the way to my faith in Christ and flipped my entire world around in a positive way.”
Kelli, like many, assumed she immediately needed to go to Africa or work in an orphanage. Now that this missing piece in her life was filled, she wanted to do more than what she had, but was fearful of what that “something” was. Mentors and friends encouraged her to stay in school.
Professional athletes know Danny Arnold’s name. His name and Houston-area training facilities, Plex, are synonymous with success in the elite athletic circles. Clients include Julius Peppers, Charles Woodson, and Lance Berkman are just three of the many elite athletes who have trained with Danny. Unlike many training-only facilities, Danny’s facilities and programming is a combination sports medicine and performance-based facility. He didn’t want to be just another “strength & conditioning guy” so he built something better.
Danny took some time recently to sit down with Compete Every Day to share how he built Plex, his approach to training, and what he competes for.
